What do I have to do to get you in a pair of #MonsterInspiration headphones today?


Picture it. A Bacchanalian afterparty. Two women, stunningly outfitted in White Cloud toilet paper hats, both still giddy about being selected to interview the glamorously hilarious Wendi-McLendon Covey of Bridesmaids.

Hell, yeah, I’m bragging. Wouldn’t you?!!?

And then it got even better. Thanks to Monster Products. They were there exhibiting their newest headphone model – Monster Inspiration. Color me excited. Way excited. Mel and I wasted no time trying them on and testing them out right there in the middle of the raucous event. What better place to test their noise cancellation abilities, right? Of course right.

“What song do you want to hear?” the friendly Monster rep asked me. “Um … “ I mumble, scrolling through her many selections, “How about this one?”

“You don’t have to be rich to be my girl …. you don’t have to be cool to rule my world … Ain’t no particular sign I’m more compatible with … I just want your extra time and your ….. Kiss.”

I felt like Julia Roberts in her famously cute hot tub scene in Pretty Woman. Except all I had to do for the headphones is write this review. Which, honestly, writes itself. After all, these things are the Cadillac of musical headgear. Especially considering I’ve been slumming it with ear buds all these years. (Who knew?) We were truly so impressed with their sound as well as their durability. When I say they’re exactly what you look for in a quality headphone, I’m not exaggerating. Not one bit. (Note to readers: I will never misrepresent myself on this blog. You have my word on that one. In fact, I just turned down an incredible review opportunity last week because I was displeased with their product. And that’s all I’m saying.)

Oh, and they invited us to take pictures with them. Lots of pictures. And then share them on our many platforms of social media. (insert pause to pretend I’m shy) “Well … okay. If that’s what you really want, Monster Products. I’ll do it. But only because you asked so nicely.”

I know what you’re thinking. There’s a word for girls like me. And I like to think it’s …. savvy. (Although I would also have accepted cheese-loving.)

I texted Dave one of my pictures and then broke the news. He was over the moon. It’s not easy to get this man over the moon, you guys.

We cradled them as though they were babies, delivered them to our hotel room and played with them for the rest of the trip. We absolutely hated having to put them away for our flights home.

And of course, once I actually got here, everyone took a turn checking them out.

To borrow from my girl Julia Roberts again … Big thumbs up, Monster Inspiration. Big. HUGE. From everyone in this house. And that boy in the top right corner who owns a pair of your biggest competitors … well, he was pretty freakin’ jealous of impressed with his mom. Thanks for giving me the props. Not only do they enrich my music experience, but they also up my dwindling coolness quotient. It’s a scientific fact. I even conducted an experiment with them right here on ODNT.

Monster Inspiration Headphones – The Coolness Test


Mel and I scored big at the recent BlogHer conference in Chicago. The swag there flows from the Expo Hall like a river and we walked out … literally … with more than we could carry. (Chicago’s homeless and Midway Airport staffers profited from our bounty as well.) One of the most exciting “samples” we each managed to bring home are Monster Inspiration noise cancellation headphones.

No, YOU shut up!

And we’ll be reviewing them here for you soon. So, there have been lots and lots (and LOTS!) of selfies taken with our new toys. And they made me realize that maybe, just maybe, these things can take a few years off me and make me look cool again.

But let’s test that theory, shall we?

Just how cool will Monster headphones make me?

20130816-174139.jpg

What if I add, say, a retainer to the equation? Does that ruin it? (pause to study picture) Nope. Still cool.

20130816-174153.jpg

Fine. What about a retainer AND glasses? Nope. I still look totally awesome.

20130816-174200.jpg

Okay. Retainer, glasses, purple pillow pet. Geez! These things are like MAGIC! I’ve never looked more amazing.

20130816-174207.jpg

I am now pulling out the stops, my friends! Retainer, glasses, purple pillow pet and pigtails. What? Seriously? I am still Pinky freakin’ Tuscadero.

* * * * * * * * * *

And YOU could be Pinky Tuscadero, too. All you hafta do is read our reviews and pick up a pair … or put them on your Christmas list. What? You don’t know who Pinky Tuscadero is?? Fine. Just shorten the name to Pink. Same thing.

Stay tuned for the Monster Inspiration review coming soon!
